gotta be right? a little tired of hearing his whining on the radio. if so, interesting to see who gets the seat. I can't see Grosjean taking it but what do I know.

Doubtful, but I think he will only get resigned for one year at Ferrari.

Vettel likes to work with Kimi. That's why Kimi will probably get one more year at Ferrari. Then it's time to retire.

Heard from a friend yesterday that this year may be the last rodeo for Silverstone but I haven't seen anything printed yet. Bad data?

I feel bad for Kimi. He's an immensely talented driver who keeps getting the short end of the stick with these bizarre crashes or other drivers ignoring the blue flags.

Thanks - I'm a relatively new fan. This seems like moving the superbowl off shore. What ever happened to the New Jersey race that was being kicked around?

Sounds like they couldn't get things organized and opted to cancel, but there have been rumors they will try again in a few years.

Stupid tires. Oh well. This time, Martin did take ill. I went to see a grid walk, and no Martin again, and they explained he had to be taken to a medical facility. Ross Brawn even had a trophy for him for twenty years of his grid walks. I hope he's okay.

Recent reports are Martin is up and around but still quite unwell with a gastric issue. Probably the same as the rest of us with Hamilton giving everyone the [censored]. grin

Bit of nice racing today. Can't believe Alonso was out again and I was gutted for Palmer not enter making the start.

Raikonen was not happy and I can completely understand that, be interesting to see what happened with those tyres.

The tire issue was very intersting... both Ferraris with troubles on the left front in the closing laps. Vettel's looked like a puncture, but Raikkonen's looked like it was coming apart. Very strange indeed.

And I'm absolutely amazed at how terrible the Honda engines are. It's beyond laughable. I don't see any scenario in which Honda will return with McLaren next year, or with anyone perhaps, now that Sauber has ruled out Honda engines for next season.

Alonso must be torn between laughing and crying and throwing a massive tantrum. With the tire issue, at least it affected Kimi and Seb relatively equally (well, Seb got the worst of it), rather than Kimi just having another flash of bad luck out of the blue.

As for Martin, I was concerned it might be his heart, after his problems last year.
